Stanford, Prometheus Research to Build Genetic Registry for Sleep Medicine

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Prometheus Research said today that it is building a genetic registry as part of a large-scale Stanford University study designed to advance the field of sleep medicine.

Directed by Emmanuel Mignot, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Stanford Medicine, the Stanford Technology Analytics and Genomics in Sleep (STAGES) study is designed to explore sleep through the collection of objective and subjective sleep data alongside biological samples from 30,000 patients at more than 10 sleep clinic sites.

Prometheus will aid the project by helping to join and collate highly disparate data from multiple sources, including third-party research data, genetic information, images, and sensor output, the company said.
